I hope I understand what you're looking for. You have CentOS 5 installed, and
now you want to add OMSA, right (sorry, I've burned the previous posts, and
it's too late on a Friday to search the list)? Simply make the addition
to /etc/redhat-release, then do your installation from the CD you made
previously. Making the addition to /etc/redhat-release makes the OS look
like RHEL to software that's looking specifically for that.
